Ms. D was extremely patient and thorough with me. And her warm demeanor helped me calm my nerves and loosen up. I appreciate all the valuable insight and direction she gave me.

I had such an amazing experience training with Detrece! She always has such sweet positive energy. I was so happy that with me being more of an advanced singer she was able to teach me about my voice and tips that I never knew! I only had 5 lessons and still had a vocal breakthrough where she helped me realize my range is wider than I thought. She gave me more confidence and is always seeking to share opportunities with me. I’m so grateful to her!!

Really enjoyed my first lesson with Mushir, extremely talented, friendly and a great teacher. Looking forward to learning more from him in my next lesson!!!
Alan
Mushir is an incredible magician! My family had the pleasure of experiencing his "magical" touch aboard a Carnival cruise several years ago. We kept calling him to our table at every opportunity to try to figure out his secrets. We never did! He is so good at what he does! This evening, out of the clear blue, my daughter and I started reminiscing about the cruise we took and the unforgettable magic performances Mushir provided. I googled his name and found him here! It's like MAGIC we found him! I hope you're doing well Mushir! The magic trick you did with your necktie still blows our minds!
